Item description for Very Simple Arabia by James Peters...
Building on the runaway successes of Very Simple Arabic and Very Simple Arabic Script, renowned Arabist James Peters' new book is a practical (and entertaining) general introduction to the culture of the Gulf. Peters combines an authoritative text with his inimitable cartoons like no other author dealing with this subject today.
The author of The Arab World Handbook proves once again to be an indispensable guide and companion for any visitor (on business or pleasure) to the fascinating and sometimes demanding land that is the Arab world.
Split into two parts, Simple Etiquette in Arabia and The Customs and Culture of Arabia, James Peters extracts the common denomiators of etiquette in the Gulf, as well as describing the essential first steps in understanding the place, the people and the culture.
